“Dead Can Dance” are one of the few bands from the 80’s “Goth” scene that have a consistent discography, and they are one of the few bands in the scene that have managed to branch out of the scene to the point where simply labeling them “Goth” does not do the band’s music justice with their explorations in “World” music and “Experimental” music. Now, six years after their comeback release Anastasis, the band will release a new album titled DIONYSUS on November 2nd, and they will also embark on a tour next May. You can pre-order the album as well as view tour dates below:

As overlooked as “Electronic” duo “ADULT.” may be, there’s no denying the fact that they consistently release forward thinking and enigmatic music. It’s at a point now where simply labeling them “Electronic” doesn’t do the duo’s uncompromising sound justice. Following their ambitious collaboration heavy album Detroit House Guests, the Detroit duo will release a new album on September 7th titled This Behavior through “Dais Records.” They have also shared a brand new track off the album titled “Perversions of Humankind,” as well as a music video to accompany it.

Album Review: Death Grips – Year of the Snitch

F0D6F83B-E3BD-4C3B-936F-F48B3A3FE790

Artist: Death Grips

Album: Year of the Snitch 

Genre: Industrial Hip Hop/Experimental 

Rating: 8/10

 With a band like “Death Grips,” a band that have built a career on abrasion and dark subject matter, there’s a high risk of becoming a gimmick. Sure their music is brilliant and one might even say they’re the most important band of the decade, but there’s always that chance that a band like this can succumb to expectations and tropes they have created for themselves, but as the band have proven plenty of times in the past, they really don’t care about satisfying their fanbase. Their new album Year of the Snitch is further proof of that. After years of reinvention after reinvention, the band have yet again reinvented themselves. Sure this is unmistakably a “Death Grips” album, it’s noisy as Hell, and MC Ride continues to deliver aggressive and paranoid vocals with cryptic lyrics that are nearly impossible to decipher, but this is surprisingly their most Experimental and bizarre work yet. If their previous album Bottomless Pit was the band going back to the basics of their debut The Money Store, then Year of the Snitch is the band expressing to us all that this is a second incarnation of themselves. This album is a sinister odyssey that will leave the listener uneasy and confused. There are “A Clockwork Orange” sounding synths all throughout this album, and at times it even sounds like the band is being possessed by “The Residents.” Oh yeah this album is bizarre, and it is glorious.

Album Review: Nine Inch Nails – Bad Witch

7C1E0AFC-5922-4BB9-BFCD-782B3AA40EB8

Artist: Nine Inch Nails

Album: Bad Witch

Genre: Industrial Rock/Experimental 

Rating: 6/10

 Judging from recent interviews with Trent Reznor, it’s pretty evident that the guy has become a bitter old man, but luckily for him, bitterness and anger have been “Nine Inch Nails’” Forte since day 1, so the anger and blatant nihilism of his new album Bad Witch is unsurprising. This is both a good and a bad thing. The good being that the furious delivery and negative perspective on the human condition over chaotic “Industrial” heavy production is genuine and believable, and doesn’t come off as a man trying to relive his glory days, but the bad thing is that this album is back to business as usual, and at this point “Nine Inch Nails” have become predictable. This is ironic seeing as how Reznor and now official member Atticus Ross completely scrapped the original drafts of this album for being “too predictable.” Though the addition of saxophone is unlike anything “Nine Inch Nails” have done in the past, the whole thing is obvious Blackstar David Bowie era worship, and it is not even close to being as captivating as Bowie’s album. At this point, the band is in desperate need of reinvention.
